Security Clearance and On-boarding

National Security Clearances are a hierarchy of five levels, depending on the classification of materials that can be accessed—Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS), Counter-Terrorist Check (CTC), Enhanced Baseline Standard (EBS), Security Check (SC) and Developed Vetting (DV).

Some of our defence team at MANE have themselves held SC clearance, so we are ideally positioned to support our customers and candidates through the Security Clearance process.

With our customers, we support the process from beginning to end; starting at candidate qualification to make sure candidates are able to attain the appropriate clearance, to ensuring candidates bring the completed documentation to interview stage, to facilitating regular and two-way communication to make sure everyone’s expectations are managed throughout the initial 6-8 weeks in which SC clearance is typically granted.

From our candidates perspective this may well be the first time they have applied for security clearance, so explaining up-front and throughout our engagement, what to expect, what is required, how long it is likely to take, etc. is a huge part of making sure our candidates remain informed and engaged through the on-boarding process.
